Being the ‘Queen of Red Carpets’ does not come easy, and Nana Akua Addo continues to pull all the stop to maintain that status. Over the weekend the Ghanaian fashion enthusiast was an instant hit on social media with her breath-taking outfit for the 5th Glitz Style Awards.

The infamous ‘bird dress’ is a creation of Philipino designer, who has been dubbed as the ‘Master Couturier’ in the fashion world. Cary Santiago is an international designer whose gowns have been worn by the First Family of the Philippines, Beyonce, Fergie, Miss Universe contestants and some of the very elite in every corner of the world.

His works ain’t cheap and have a price range between 8,000 to 10,000 dollars (55,011 Ghana cedis).

It usually takes four people and seven days to make a Cary Santiago gown.

Nana Akua Addo’s gown was one of the designs he displayed at the TernoCon 2018 Fashion Show in the Philipines.

In an interview with Pulse Ghana, Nana Akua Addo revealed what inspired her to wear this very expensive gown.

“Most of these fashion icons are now representing themselves through animals. Animals they feel have connections with how powerful they are. Beyoncé recently did it and it was a lion. I have done it. It is the eagle.”

The Ultimate Guide To Choosing The Perfect Viking Bracelet For Your Business

Published

on

viking

So, you’re in the market for a new bracelet. But not just any bracelet – a Viking bracelet. A piece of stylish and functional jewelry will make you feel empowered and motivated to take on whatever the day throws your way. With so many options out there, how do you choose the perfect one for you and your business? Look no further – this guide will help you select the perfect Viking bracelet for your professional needs.

  1. Size Matters:

The first step in finding your perfect Viking bracelet is determining what size you need. Do you want a bracelet that is delicate and dainty? Or bold and chunky? The size of your wrist will also play a role in which style of bracelet looks best on you. If you have a small wrist, go for a thinner bracelet that won’t overwhelm your frame. Conversely, if you have a larger wrist, you can choose a chunkier style without worry. This jewelry store provide different sizes of bracelets and you can have a look.

  1. Think About The Materials:

When it comes to Viking bracelets, there are several different materials to choose from – like leather, silver, or even gold. What type of metal do you usually gravitate towards? Do you prefer the look of leather or suede? Choose a material that not only looks good on you but also matches your personal aesthetic. If you are looking for a statement piece, go big with an oversized silver or gold cuff. If you want something a little more subdued, opt for a thin leather strap with an intricate metal clasp.

  1. Consider The Color:

Color is another important factor to think about when choosing your Viking bracelet. Do you want something that will stand out and make a statement? Or do you prefer more understated jewelry? Metallics are always a good choice if you want something versatile that will go with everything in your closet. If you are looking for something a little more unique, try out one of the many colored leather or bone options available on the market today.

  1. Make sure the Fit is Right:

The fit is one of the most important things to consider when selecting a Viking bracelet. Do you have a small or larger wrist? Are you looking for something that will slide easily over your hand, or do you want something with a bit more grip? With so many different designs and materials available, it can be tough to find the perfect fit.

  1. Think About What You Would Like To Wear It With:

Do you want your Viking bracelet to be the focal point of your outfit, or do you want to pair it with other accessories for a complete look? If you are looking for something that will stand out easily, go with something in bolder colors or a more intricate design. However, opt for something less flashy if you want your bracelet to blend in and be part of the ensemble.

Final Thoughts:

Choosing the perfect Viking bracelet for yourself or your business can seem like a daunting task. But with this guide, hopefully, it’s a little easier! Remember to consider size, materials, and color when selecting – and don’t be afraid to try something outside your comfort zone. After all, fashion is all about taking risks!

Being uniquely creative in a saturated industry as the fashion industry requires more than just the ability to make a perfect stitch. Just as they say, Imagination encircles the world. Ellanore; a Ghanaian fashion brand through its creative ingenuity is spearheading a new paradigm in today’s fashion space.
Raised in a fashion-obsessed household, Emmanuella Abena Amankwah, an old student of Radford University, the face behind the undisputed brand ELLANORE, has grown to become a household name in the fashion industry while cherishing her desire and strides to make fashion her residence and also, ignite some difference while at it.
Born and raised in Ghana by an affectionate and devoted fashion-oriented mother, Emmanuella, from the get go knew what she wanted, and marked her tracks in achieving that.

Ellanore

Ellanore

Though her ambitions of becoming a seasoned fashion designer were boundless and could not be distracted, she was poised for global excellence and has since worked assiduously towards that.
Her love to create and bring her creative designs to life has been the foundation of her brand. As talented as she is, it is no surprise her outstanding works speak heavily for themselves. Her secret, the desire to see her customers satisfied and happy.
Emmanuella began her fashion brand in 2017 and jumped unto the online platform in the year 2020. She is an all-round fashion designer with great experience in both haute couture and ready-to-wear pieces. She strives to create clothes that are both useful and aesthetically pleasing to stay relevant.
For her, making a perfect garment demands more than just body measurement. The herculean process of creating and making an ideal gown goes through diverse analysis and selection process, including who is wearing it, where it is being worn, and how it must be worn.
While at this, there is also the task of considering materials to work with, as well as a range of colors, designs, accessories, and styles to choose from.
As the creative face behind the Ellanore brand, Emmanuella Abena Amankwah focuses on certain concepts and as a fashion designer, centers on making a statement when it comes to her designs rather than selling out.
According to Abena Amankwah, though the work sometimes can be nerve-racking and stressful, her daughter and family have been her biggest source of inspiration. She however added that it is most fulfilling to receive recommendations from clients who happily wear your brand’s custom-made outfits.
Ella, whose mother takes center stage of her business and growth obviously has got a big shoe to fill, and that she take with pride.
Madam Jane Eck of Janeck Fashion has been a major source of strength to her daughter. Though aged, madam Jane Eck till date, oversees production and plays a role in the affairs of Ellanore. It is no wonder their works exhumes so much life.
Speaking on some challenges associated with her work, the CEO of Ellanore mentioned that with a chunk of her client being foreign-based, it sometimes becomes a challenge to get accurate measurements since you would have to take customers through a guided live video session on how to take body measurements.
Yet, Emmanuella and her team know no limitations, work on all body types and shapes, and nail them all. Even though her brand specializes in making clothes for women, she still has plans on bringing men on board.
As a brand, she specializes in creating clothes which will sway you away, put a smile on your face and leave constantly satisfied. To Emmanuella, her customers are her first and foremost priority.
Her loving and pursuing heart makes her fond of her clients and makes sure they enjoy working with her. Her adventurous spirit creates a satisfying environment to slay on her designs.
She aims at adding beautiful touches to her work from size 6 down to even a size 22. She hammers the word neat in her job description and makes it professional.
Ellanore has been in the fashion design industry for 5 years and she’s not stopping until her dream of becoming a world-known fashion label becomes a reality.
